And, then, seconds later after he starts to play, he can look like an crazed puppy.
And then he transforms again. He gets his ears back under control, and he changes to a more serious puppy.
In honor of Super Bowl Sunday, I am sharing footage from our local puppy bowl today (a.k.a., puppy socialization class). Enjoy the video!
It is tons of fun to watch the puppies play but it also serves a more serious purpose. It teaches puppies how to understand dog communication and get along with all sorts of other puppies and people. I can attest that Hachi has improved almost an unbelievable amount in these classes over the past 6 weeks. He used to get into small tiffs with other puppies several times during a class and now he plays peaceably with them. If these classes work like they did for R, Hachi will grow into an adult who can get along with almost any other dog... and that's a wonderful quality!
